Borderline comp or politics

Hackers have learned how to send emergency Presidential alerts to cell phones, bad enough the thought of T messages appearing on my phone, now they can come from anyone with a few bucks for fake cell towers.

Opinion on T is purely mine.

Put it this way, in computers since 68 and first year discovering the Arpanet.

 

With every other hack discovered, just want to move to a cave and sever all communications .

 

No problem seen by someone in WH or GOP with tilting and election results. No problem accepting help from foreign entity to get dirt on opponent, even if against the laws.

No problem and willing to do again, despite being told by FBI it’s against the law of this country I still like.

 

Seekng a cave or mog now!
